And it won’t be long before those who oppose the government in any way will be deemed as mentally ill and a threat and will have their guns confiscated. This will happen.
Just like in the Soviet Union. Of course, New York is already a socialist republic. I cannot image why anyone lives there now.
Christianity and Mental Health
In the November/December 1987 issue of The Humanist magazine, a psychotherapist, Dr. Wendell Watters, explains how he believes Christianity may harm mental health. This is not a new charge. The followers of Christ have been accused of mental illness before (Acts 26:24; 2 Cor. 5:13), and even the founder of Christianity Himself was charged with being out of His mind (Mk. 3:21; Jn. 10:20). People tend to make this accusation when they find the doctrines of Christianity hard to accept. The following is a response to various views this humanist sets forth in his treatise on Christianity and Mental Health. (The page numbers refer to the article.)
Dr. Watters discusses what he says are two powerful manipulative tools of the church: proselytization and dualism. Concerning proselytization or evangelization, he states that the Great Commission (Mt. 28:19, 20) caused a frenzied commitment to spreading the good news and winning new convertsa commitment that was foreign to all other religions (p. 6). He says that after Constantines conversion the church employed methods of torture to persuade people to be converted. Dr. Watters believes the impetus for torturous methods of persuasion were initiated by Paul:
Christians will be considered mentally ill. Just wait. We are already considered terrorists.
I have heard many times the left calling conservatives “mentally ill”. Right here on FR I routinely read conservatives labeling liberals as such. Both view points cannot be factual, but WHO is setting the policies which define mental illness is where the slope gets slippery. Presently we are faced with anti-Americans elected and appointed defining all kinds of policies and who don’t give a whit about the constitution nor their oaths to it or about what is best for America. It won’t take them long now to declare conservatives can’t own guns under whatever guise they wish. So, let’s preempt them and pass a law in every state as the 10A provides for that declares all who are demonstrably anti-constiutional cannot own weapons, run for any elected office or vote, nor work as a journalist. Those who can repeat the pledge of allegiance from memory without reservation and are not felons get their 2A rights. Those who believe 9 rounds are enough and 11 are too many, don’t. What?, I am still free enough to dream. :)
